Jay,I think the gift selection's for JFM have been chosen with a lot of thought. JFM,thanks for all the effort that goes into the maintenance of this enjoyable & fine site. We wish everyone a Happy and Healthy Holiday.
As a side note JFM, if you would like to raise your Georgian Bay teak bench, that 4"x6"x1/4" stainless steel channel did a neat job on my RPS.(humor)

I needed to make this correction!(oops)
JFM thank's for spear heading the acknowledgement program that allowed the fellow Whalers out there show JimH how much the website means to many of us. A very special thanks to JimH, I personally really enjoy the site. Thanks again and again.
Happy Holidays,
